For a Rapidly Deployable Emergency Shelter Building, Choose Big Top

Emergency Shelter BuildingBig Top’s versatile fabric structures are the perfect option for governmental organizations that need an emergency shelter building that can be quickly deployed in nearly any location. Our shelters assemble quickly and can be anchored to a variety of foundations, including asphalt and shipping containers. Once the emergency has passed, they can be just as quickly disassembled and stored for future use.

Customizing Your Emergency Relief Shelter

Big Top can customize an emergency building in myriad ways to meet your needs. For instance, with the right add-ons, your fabric structure can be used as:

  • A treatment center for the injured or sick – Using internal partitions, we can create separate rooms for triage, first aid, and surgery. Negative-pressure ventilation systems are also available to maintain a sterile environment.
  • Temporary living quarters for displaced victims – We can equip a shelter with a full HVAC system and insulation to keep victims comfortable until a resolution is found.
  • A base of operations for emergency responders – Our structures can be built to nearly any size and can therefore have enough space to accommodate a command center, sleeping quarters for staff, and storage of emergency vehicles.

Outstanding Protection from the Elements

No matter how you use your emergency shelter building, you can count on the fabric roof to block 99.95 percent UV-A and UV-B radiation and the galvanized steel frame to stand strong against volatile weather. The fabric roof also helps to maintain a comfortable interior temperature that is, on average, 15 degrees cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter than the outside temperature, and will flood the interior with natural light thanks to its translucent design. Additionally, the roof is NFPA701 flame-retardant as required by International Building Code.
